Catalyst Waterproof Sleeve

Back when I went to school, no one carried around laptops (which barely existed) or tablets (which didn’t exist). What did exist was rain and snow, and we surely had plenty of that. If you find yourself in the same environment this school year, but with $1,000 of technology to carry around, you may want to check out Catalyst before heading back to school.

Catalyst has unveiled a line of protective waterproof sleeves that accommodate tablets and laptops, or even just documents and books. The Catalyst Waterproof Sleeve uses a minimal design aesthetic that complements any setting, casual or formal, and is perfect for students walking to class or employees commuting to work.

The level of protection and versatility incorporated into the sleeves makes them perfect for students and anyone else whose on-the-go lifestyle demand more durability than what’s offered by generic options. Cushioned with high-grade EVA foam and featuring an IP66 Waterproof rating, these slim and versatile bags incorporate welded waterproof construction and a double-lock watertight closure to completely seal out rain, snow, dirt, spilled drinks and possibly even brief submersion underwater. A handy strap system can be adjusted for use as a small backpack, a single-shoulder sling bag or as a standalone protective layer that fits into a tote or briefcase.

The Catalyst Waterproof Sleeve is available in black only, but comes in three sizes: 8” for tablets ($39.99), 11” for small- to medium-sized laptops ($44.99) and 15” for larger laptops ($54.99). For more information, visit

While you’re there, you may also want to check out their all-weather iPhone 4/4s and 5/5s cases, which are available now for $64.99. Catalyst would also like you to know that “… more soon-to-be-released accessories will further enable their owners to take their technology beyond their usual limits as they go further, deeper and higher in life.”
